The leading market player in the Indian kids’ animation segment, Cosmos-Maya appoints Rajaram Sundaresan as the Director of Operations for International Business. The news of the appointment came right after the news of a massive investment with controlling interest by the Hong Kong-based NewQuest Capital, with ex-investors Emerald Media making a profitable exit with 4X returns.
Having previously handled production for ventures like Prime Focus, Delux Entertainment and DQ Entertainment, Rajaram brings over 30 years of experience in the animation industry.
As a Director of Operations for International Business, Sundaresan will look to take responsibilities ranging from client relations and project management to revenue maximization for the division. Rajaram has been appointed to set a higher standard for the creative team at Cosmos-Maya by targeting to produce content for the largest international broadcasters. The paradigm shift in the Indian kids’ entertainment segment that was initiated with successful shows like Motu Patlu in the domestic market and Eena Meena Deeka internationally, will now be helmed by Rajaram who is tasked to lead Cosmos-Maya to greater heights internationally.
Speaking on the appointment, Anish Mehta, CEO of Cosmos-Maya said “We extend a warm welcome to Rajaram. Cosmos-Maya hopes to significantly benefit from his expertise in scaling businesses and deepening their position while maintaining a strong governance and risk mitigation structure. We have a growing presence globally with multiple international co-production projects in nearly every continent, and with Rajaram coming on board we are gearing to see much more along this road.”
On his appointment, Rajaram Sundaresan said, “I am excited to be joining the team of creative technology enthusiasts who have relentlessly worked since a decade to create a highly fertile ecosystem and a huge corporate entity with immense brand value in its sector. With the entertainment industry witnessing a rapid growth, Cosmos-Maya will look to increase market share with consistent quality production in the animation space commensurate with global benchmarks of kids animated content.”
